It could be your automatic transmission fliud. normally this fluid is color red. have it checked right away because you may have bigger problems if you ignore it.

you can check your level by running the truck on neutral and check your dip stick on your transmission fluid.

is it an oil leak or other fluid --under engine you have the oil filter - power steering lines-transmission pan ,lines -transfer case -front c/v axles and center ham -coolant-brake fluid-and gas all these lines are at the back of the trucks engine you need to look at whats wet and where to pin point a fluid leak best is by color trans-power steering usually redish --oil, transfer,axle,blackish ---coolant green or red --brake, tan

Fluid leaks


all that's over there is the rubber brake line and the caliper. Check all connections to lines. Check the bleeder on the caliper and makes sure the hose going to the caliper has the brass washers and the bolts tight

Check all the fluid to see which one is low. Red fluid can be transmission fluid or red coolant fluid.

Leaving a parked spot I noticed some red fluid under the middle front of the car. Someone it was transmission fluid.Also noticed that there was dried fluid same position in the garage where I park the car....


The red fluid is probably transmission fluid. Pick some up on your finger smell it and if possible compare it to known transmission fluid. You invariably have a leak. If you want to find the leak try this.

Locate a large piece of cardboard and place this under your cars engine compartment just after you garage it tonight. The cardboard will tell all on the leak location.

As far as adding trans fluid . . . you only need to ad fluid if it is low. The transmission is often refered to as a transaxle. Also transmission fluid is most commonly added via the transmission fluid dip stick hole via funnel. Be Careful not to over fill the transmission.

Good Luck

sounds like your transmission. if the fluid is red or in your case, a really dark red almost brown, then it is your transmission. you might be able to catch it in time to have the leak fixed and save the transmission.

If it's red, it's transmission fluid. Coolant would be green. Check the fluid level, don't let it get low, Chrysler minivans are prone to transmission troubles, and low fluid levels over time will ruin a a transmission. And be sure not to overfill, it's just as bad for the trans. Have the leak checked out and repaired, good luck
